About
Online I go by the alias of Shuuda. I am currently living North Yorkshire, England. In 2011 I graduated from the University of Hull with a first class degree in Design for Digital Media, where I studied both the creative and theoretical sides of the digital technology and the internet.

As someone who is passionate about about video games than the fantasy genre, I am highly interested in how stories can be told through interactive media. I concern myself with how the genre is portrayed within the medium and its implications. I give it both criticism and praise, but mostly criticism. Writing fiction has been my hobby for many years, and I feel that video games have influenced and inspired the content of my work in recent times.

Sad to say there will be no game impressions or review from me this week. It was a case of depressed Monday, busy Tuesday, exhausted Wednesday, couldnít be arsed Thursday, write this up desperately Friday. Hopefully next week Iíll be back on track. In the meantime there is one little thing I want to promote related to Goldeneye which might interest nostalgia addled buffoons like myself.



Iím certain many here will be familiar with the Nintendo 64′s Goldeneye. Well now thereís a rather nice orchestral cover album produced by Rich Douglas, a composer who is currently working on games like Lifeless Planet and Shadowgate 25th Anniversary. Itís pay what you want with a minimum price of $10.00. For that you get fifteen tracks remastered from Goldeneye with a duration of just over forty minutes.

Staying true the originals the album retains the cold, industrial feel of the soundtrack, with the old exciting Bond theme mixed in for good measure. It features some of my personal favourites, including the Runway and Depot themes as well as some tracks I get the feel other remixes perhaps leave by the wayside.

Perhaps my only criticism of this is that there was some tracks that I would have wanted to see which were absent, such as the Cradle mission. At the end of the day thatís just a nitpick of whatís a fine album. What has been included is simply magificent.

You can pick up this cover album from Loudr.fm here. Iíll remind you that itís pay as you want for a minimum price of $10.00. All of itís worth your time. Heck, if not for the soundtrack of the recently released Touhou 14 this cover album would have been the only music I listened to this week.

You can also read this on my personal blog.
